Without fear, Akir is here and is ready to share his talent and verbal expertise with the world, with the help of his forthcoming album The Plan (Viper). With a vibe that is a cross between Mobb Deep, Sunz Of Man, and Smooth Da Hustler, Akir (which stands for “Always Keep It Real”) wants to be sure to keep all ears and eyes open when he is within the listening and visual vicinity, which is another way of saying that he is effective in what he does and will make people stop and pay attention. The Plan features collaborations with Swave Sevah, TL Cross, Sheena Grier, Lo Diggs, and Immortal Technique, the latter who appears in the song below, “Future”.

Not only is Akir an MC, but he’s also a producer, handling eight of the 12 tracks on the album, including five with co-producer Ty Steez, who work together as The Sound (Ty Steez also takes two songs on his own).

The Plan, figuratively and literally is a good one, and if you like Akir’s collab with Immortal Technique, you’ll be able to see them together along with Brother Ali when they tour together beginning in late September at the D.C. stop for Rock The Bells:
